Jul '09
The state assemblyman for Tanjung Batu, Mr. Hamisa Samat said that the art of weaving and handicraft, which is a hobby of Kampong folk, can be commercialized at the international level.

He said this is because the Kampongs folk of Sabah spend most of their time in weaving and in making handicrafts, which has become a popular work among those in order to increase their incomes.

Mr. Samat was speaking while officiating the Mengkuang Weaving Skill Workshop, which was sponsored by the Sabah Foundation South East Coastal Zone, at the Gerakan Desa Wawasan Merotai, here.

About 20 participants including housewives from Kampung Merotai Besar have attended the workshop, where activities like mengkuang weaving competition using own creativity has been undertaken.

Use of latest technology in the industry can fulfill the customers' needs as well as the taste of different communities for their daily practical needs or for decorating their homes, he added.

Efforts of Kampong folk can be enhanced through their creativity, quality, work finesse, fulfilling the taste of customers and market needs, added Mr. Samat, who also urged youths to learn the art of weaving and handicraft for the sake of survival of this art.
